Kendrick Meek’s campaign launched a new website today, SlumlordBillionaire.Com after the St. Petersburg Times/Miami Herald and South Florida Sun Sentinel/Orlando Sentinel ran stories this Sunday detailing Jeff Greene’s alleged involvement in serious activities connected to a massive case of fraud in the California housing market.
The campaign also renewed calls for Jeff Greene to release his taxes and rejected Greene’s claims that doing so would compromise his privacy considering personal information like addresses and social security numbers can be redacted.
Abe Dyk, Kendrick’s campaign Manager released the following statement: “After a series of damning stories in Florida’s leading newspapers allegedly connecting Jeff Greene with serious fraudulent activities in California, now more than ever Greene must come forward and release his tax returns as all major candidates have already done. Floridians deserve an in-depth and thorough look at Greene’s tax returns to better understand his mysterious and deeply troubling business dealings.”
On the day this scandal broke, Kendrick Meek received the endorsement of his hometown newspaper, the Miami Herald citing “honorable record of public service” and “his experience as a former state police trooper, state legislator and member of Congress.”
